Rich caramel, sweet roasted almonds with a hint of cloves on the palate. Round mouthfeel, sweet, light spices moving to tartness and a bit of edgy fruit on the palate.

Rich Xmas pudding, ginger, almonds on the nose. The palate is treated to a hint of dry grass with caramel and toffee. Initially there was a wee edge but it faded away. Need to go back to this one a few more times. Not sure I got entirely what it has to deliver. It is very good.

The second in a troica tasting of Canadian whiskies, this whisky is more full bodied that its lighter cousin (CC Premium) and manages to hold its promise until the final end,

I tasted this whisky using The Famous Grouse as a comparison standard ( the latter I rated as 60). I found the Famous Grouse to be mellower than the CC Clasic which had hints of honey and fennel with an unfortunate cloying resinous finish.
